The founder of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has slammed Nigerian leader refusing to reopen churches over fear of COVID-19.
The video below shows Oyedepo asking if one can stop engaging in activities when a closed one dies. He also recounted how he resumed school the following day after a classmate of his died in class.
He also warned that there will soon be a “preaching censor board” in Nigeria.
His words come just days after Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of Christ Embassy slammed religious leaders for approving a COVID-19 guideline issued by the government to the Church.
“One of the reasons you still have lockdown of churches in several countries right now is not even the government. You will be amazed. It is church organizations that are keeping many churches locked up till now.
“The so-called advisers of government. The government invited certain church leaders, consulting with them whether to open the churches or not to, they advised the government to keep the churches locked because of their own fear, greed and jealousy. These are there problems, nothing else. And they kept those churches locked”, he said.
